**DrBob222**, Wednesday, October 3, 2007 at 9:05pmSuppose the lot had an area of 60 sq ft.

Then 4/5 x 60 = 48 sq ft for tomatoes.

and 1/6 x 48 = 8 sq ft for cherry tomatoes. So We have 40 sq ft for ordinary tomatoes, 8 sq ft for cherry tomatoes, and the ratio of cherry tomatoes to the total space is 8/60 or 2/15. OR

1/6 x 4/5 = 4/30 = 2/15 without assuming value for area of the lot. Check my thinking.
